Johnson agreed to a one-year deal with the Steelers on Thursday, Teresa Varley of steelers.com reports. An undrafted free agent in 2012, Johnson began his career with the Broncos, registering 50 tackles over three seasons. After spending the 2015 season with the Titans, in which the 27-year-old recorded seven tackles in 16 games, Johnson will look to provide some depth at the linebacker position for the Steelers.
The Broncos announced they re-signed linebacker Steven Johnson to a one-year deal. He started 14 games last season, starting seven, and recorded 30 tackles, a fumble recovery and a half-sack. He'll compete for playing time as an inside linebacker in Denver's 3-4 defense.
Broncos linebacker and special teams contributor Steven Johnson was informed by the club that he will not be tendered, making him an unrestricted free agent come Tuesday, reports the Denver Post. According to the report, the Broncos have not closed the door on bringing him back this offseason.
The Broncos have ruled running backs Montee Ball (groin) and Ronnie Hillman (foot) out for Sunday's game against Miami, according to Denver's final injury report for Week 12. The team also listed tight ends Virgil Green (calf) and Julius Thomas (ankle) as questionable. Meanwhile, the following players were deemed probable: David Bruton (ankle), Quinton Carter (knee), Ryan Clady (groin), Britton Colquitt (illness), Paul Cornick (shoulder), Emmanuel Sanders (concussion), Steven Johnson (ankle) and Juwan Thompson (knee).
